Transactors Improv presents their annual holiday musical! This improvised, full-length show features songs and scenes made up on the spot from audience suggestions. This year’s theme is Secret Santa in a university department. Glenn Mehrbach is the musical director and Broadway veteran Lisa Jolley is the company’s special guest.
Transactors Improv: If you ho-ho-ho, they’re doing comedy; if you don’t they’re doing drama.
Transactors Improv is the longest-running improvisational theater in the south. Their work focuses on emotion, physicality, character, commitment, teamwork, and fun.
The company formed in 1983 at The ArtsSchool in Carrboro, N.C., as a children’s theater. Much of its work was scripted, but over time the group metamorphosed into a professional touring company performing improvisational theater for audiences of all ages.
Transactors Improv performs primarily in Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill and has appeared coast to coast and from Florida to Canada. The company has been heard on National Public Radio and the Canadian Broadcasting Co. Transactors Improv also teaches people of all ages in a wide variety of venues, from corporations and colleges to elementary schools and arts camps.
Members of Transactors Improv have had the opportunity to study individually and collectively with the leading lights of improv, including Groundlings founder Gary Austin, Joe Bill, Del Close, Martin de Maat, Charna Halpern of iO, Keith Johnstone, Annoyance Theater’s Mick Napier, Second City, Paul Sills, and Mark Sutton.
